Furman is a residential campus. Because of that, you'll feel like you're part of a family when you get here. Our residential communities have a way of bringing everyone together. Whether you're living in a residence hall or taking advantage of one of our residential learning communities, you'll fit right in.
Housing request and roommate matching
If you are not married or planning to live with your parents or guardians, you are required to live in one of our residence halls. We'll match you with a roommate for your first year at Furman. Be sure to review our policies regarding housing requests and roommate matching.
